The first couple go arounds we did milk our dam and feed the buckings. But I'm very glad to say that both are now nursing with Momma and perfectly content! It's just so sweet to see.
I'm debating now whether or not to disbud them.... This is something I WILL NOT do myself or Hubby. We would ask our vet to come out and do it. Ours have their horns. Just the way we bought them. But I don't know if I had a choice, I guess I'd want them gone. They get stuck in fences and tree limbs. Plus if they get into fights (which they don't here) but if they did they could really hurt each other even kill.
Disbudding: When you burn off the horns as they begin to grow in. Preferably at 1" long
Age: Preferrable before the 2 week of age mark./if their adults anesthetic is mandatory
Risks: Brain damage, death, deformed horns.
Yea..... Did you see the risks??? Is it worth it? To me no, if we weren't gonna sell them I'd leave them alone. Just keep fighting ones apart..... Maybe leave it up to the buyer to do as he/she pleases.
